After 10 years of austerity, the 1950s saw rationing draw to an end. Gathered together in this colourful creation are over 1,000 products and images cataloguing the visual culture of the decade. The 1950s Scrapbook conjures up the life and times of the Coronation of Elizabeth II to the abundance of toys and television programmes, everything memorable and evocative, illustrating an extraordinary period of British history, from rationing to rock 'n' roll, from Archie Andrews to the Mini Minor.
